Why Preventative Furnace Maintenance Matters

October 12, 2016

You have your car serviced every 3000-5000 miles. You pay a visit to your doctor every year. So why wouldn’t you remember to get your routine heating and air conditioning maintenance in Hurricane each season?

You may feel that if the AC kept you cool all through the previous summer, or you didn’t encounter any problems with your furnace last winter, that you can skip having an expert come out and take a look. But that’s where you may encounter problems.

Routinely taking your car in helps verify everything is functioning properly so you aren’t 100 miles into a 400 mile trip when your car suddenly breaks down. Visiting the doctor each year helps keep you healthy and discovers issues early, like heart problems or cancer.

It’s just the same with HVAC maintenance. The owner or Portland-based Sky Heating and Air Conditioning, Travis Smith, explained it very clearly.

“Think about if only one out of five people who owned vehicles maintained them. There would be a good amount of malfunctioning vehicles. A heating and air conditioning system can run about 2,000 hours per year, and if you assume it’s operating at the equivalent of 30 miles per hour, that concludes that you put 60,000 miles annually on your system in between maintenance.”

Smith also notes that the process is just like vehicle maintenance. “Just as a car mechanic would bring to any auto owner’s attention that it needs oil changes and regular tune-ups. There is no difference. Mechanical devices need maintenance or they will malfunction and have decreased lifespans.”

So just because your system was working great last season doesn’t mean it can skip its annual tune-up. The truth is it needs maintenance now, and every year prior to the peak heating and peak cooling season. Teays Valley Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning’s fall promotion is going on now and you can save on a seasonal Precision tune-ups by calling 304-760-5088 today.
